Default motion sickness wonder

Here is a great tip, Ginger Capsules, which can be found in any vitamin store or Target/Walmart work like a charm. Take 2 a couple times a day and you will not have any problems with sea sickness. I am super prone to motion sickness and using a combo of the transderm patch and ginger keeps me feeling absolutely great. I could probably go without the patch but i can't even turn my head fast without getting dizzy :-)

Try it and you will see . . . no side effects and it works great. The only thing is, bring a big bottle. I passed out many to anyone not feeling up to par and they all felt better.

i am a huge fan of the ginger remedy. I don't take the capsules, i prefer to eat ginger snaps and crystalized ginger candy I also drink ginger-ale.
The ginger is just enough to settle the mild queezies. It doesn't work that great for severe motion sickness,that is why you wear the patch.

Just an FYI.

If you have any of these conditions: allergies, heart problems, gall bladder problems (gall stones), brain or nervous system problems, or if you are pregnant, you should check with your doctor before using ginger.

Default Ginger for motion sickness

There is a anti-nausea beverage called "Smooth Sailing" that contains ginger along with other stuff to settle queezy feeling. I never leave the dock with out it now. Also good to have in the car on long trips when the kids start looking a little green. I got mine from a fishery supply company in Bellingham WA, but I think it may be available on elsewhere if you search around for it, or I found they're web site http://www.smoothsailing-thebeverage.com
